finally starting the 180 sw

Due to a recent leak in my 90 my 180 build has gotten into high gear. For the most part it is almost ready to go.

2 questions if anyone would be kind enough to chime in.
1. UV or no UV? If yes running most of the time or only when a problem arises?
2. After doing a good deal of research I believe I am leaning towards 3 coral maxx II LED fixtures has anyone tried or seen them in person? They are from purely H2O.

Any input on those lights. Don't want to start a led v t5 vs MH debate. Just wondering if those are adequate lights for a reef? Purelyh2o.com coral maxxII

Lol yes it has but I haven't been in a rush work has been busy and the 90 WAS running well. So it kinda got pushed to the back burner.
